I sometimes go back and look at some of the devotionals I’ve written over the years and it still amazes me at the things God has allowed to manifest through me. There I was minding my own business, wasn’t thinking about being a writer, a blogger, an encourager, a bible study teacher, get this … a minister yet here God comes and He says Marcy (He doesn’t have to call me by my fancy name, he simply calls me by my nick name), Marcy you are the clay, I am the potter and I’ve molded you into something worthy of being used, are you ready? I asked God but am I really worthy? He asked will you really work? I said as long as I have breath, health and strength. He said there will be some rough days, I can’t promise you won’t have some sick days ahead but I’ll pick you up when you fall, will you still go? I told Him, send me Lord, I’ll go! And I have. Has it been easy, no and I won’t even lie to you like it has been but being on the Lord’s side won’t be easy every day; yet it’s a part of the journey.
How many of us are willing to go where God sends us? How many of us are willing to work for God without questioning what He tells us to do? You do know that God will make some strange requests of us, right? Yea, God will have us doing some strange things but I’m learning that it has nothing to do with us but it’s about His people who need to be saved around us. The truth of the matter is; it’s not about us at all! It’s about saving those around us who are still being lost by the minute. It’s about the youth who are dying without knowing who God is. It’s about the mothers and fathers who are dying without being baptized in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. It’s about the people in the church who don’t know how to truly worship because we’ve stopped truly worshipping. It’s about the people who don’t know how to pray because we don’t spend time in devotion period praying like we used too. How many of us are willing to put our hands to the kingdom plow and not look back? There is work to be done; God just needs willing workers to do it. You don’t have to be a master at it because this line of work comes with training. Are you willing? 1 Corinthians 3:9 says, “For we are God’s fellow workers. You are God’s field, God’s building.
